Buck Jones With John Wayne - Good Old Western
Not your average shoot-'em-up western, but rather one with a story about theft, treachery, loyalty and duty. Cattle is being rustled by someone. John Wayne (Clint Turner) son of Will Walling (Turner) the rustled rancher is accused of murdering a rival rancher. Walling's adopted son, Buck Jones, is Sheriff and must do his duty. Complicating matters is the fact that Wayne and the dead man's daughter Susan Fleming want to get married. When a guilty verdict is brought in and the penalty death by hanging at sun-up is sentenced, will Jones be able to find proof to clear Wayne? Watch it to find out. A tight little western with more plot than action, but it works well. IMDb says 63:00 but we get 57:20.

Fun western with two big cowboy stars
Baby John Wayne takes backseat to silent star Buck Jones in this cheapie. The plot is typical range war/murdered rancher fare that had to be cliche even in 1931. Buck Jones must find the murderer to save his buddy John--a simpering ingenue in his first scenes!--from hanging.
Buck is a big old guy and looks the part, but we can understand why he was more of a silent than a talkies star. He died in the 1942 Cocoanut Grove fire, God rest his soul.
